MPH in Epidemiology & Biostatistics prepares students to design and conduct population health studies and apply research findings to improve the health of urban populations. It consists of 2 tracks: one in Epidemiology and one in Biostatistics. Epidemiology students learn to understand the principles, methods, strengths and limitations of epidemiologic study designs; collaborate on applied population health research; interpret epidemiologic findings, effectively communicate research and finding to lay and professional audiences, and apply the findings to the development of evidence-based interventions to improve population health. Biostatistics students gain an awareness and basic understanding of advanced statistical methods and learn to apply core and intermediate level statistical methods to public health endeavors, such as data management, statistical analysis, interpretation, and presentation of analytical results using computing technology. Graduates of both tracks are employed in government and private health agencies, industry, and research institutions. Credits: 45
